So what’s different?
The messages/invitations and the notifications have been moved from the top centre of the screen, over to the right hand side, with the search bar taking centre stage.
While there used to be 9 options along the toolbar (Home, Profile, Contacts, Groups, Jobs, Inbox, Companies, News and More), this has now been streamlined to just 5 options (Home, Profile, Networks, Jobs, Interests). However, this doesn’t mean that we have lost the other options: under ‘networks’, you have ‘contacts’, and under ‘interests’ you have ‘companies’ and ‘groups’.
· In my opinion, although I could tell straight away that the page had changed, it was quick and easy to find the tabs that I couldn’t immediately see. While people don’t tend to like change, I think these are quite subtle and that they do make the page look neater.
· If I was being picky, I would prefer the ‘Groups’ and ‘Companies’ tab to be on its own in the toolbar as they are ones that I use frequently, but they are not too far away from where they were.
